I'm here!!!

Well I have made it to my new home. I have no furniture except for my bed, but the rest of it should be arriving in half an hour. And that means my moving project is almost complete and I have time to blog again!! Moving is very time consuming. Especially cross-country moving. I moved in Denver a bunch but this was much more logistically challenging. Holy cats. Especially since very late in the game I decided to sell my car. Which was a great decision, but that definitely added a few challenges!

So here I am!! I am so excited. It is great. Very different, and it is weird living somewhere and not knowing anyone in my town, but I am excited to meet people! And luckily I have friends in the tri-state area. And my awesome friend Liz introduced me to some tri people so I have people to ride with this weekend which is very exciting. I haven't ridden my tri bike since the Ironman - once I realized I was moving I just  never unpacked it!

My family has requested photos so here are some photos of my neighborhood. And a few from my going away celebrations. I think it is so cool. I am very glad I ended up in Hoboken - it's a 10 minute train ride to Manhattan but here it is nice and quiet and calm. But there are still fun restaurants and things to do. I'm going for my first Hoboken run later today once I have unpacked a little.

View of the city from where I stayed Sunday night (I used points to stay at the W in Hoboken. If you want to visit me and don't want to sleep on the couch I highly recommend it).

My dad cooking on Saturday. They decided to do Thanksgiving since my brother and I will both be gone!
 Me and my brother at Noodles, my last meal in Denver. That was fitting since I am obsessed with Noodles and we have none here! Just for the record I think it would do really well in Hoboken.
 View of the city and the Hoboken waterfront. I think that's a mini-golf course. I will find out more when I run today.

One of many parks in Hoboken...

 Cool view of the city last night when I got back. I got these cool snaps because I got kind of lost when I was leaving the train station. What can I say, being underground is confusing.
 Another park with fantastic views that I found this morning when I walked to get coffee.
Thanks for taking a look! I will hopefully post somewhat more often now, and hopefully I'll get some good ride pictures this weekend!
